CRAP !!
There are more than 160 active volcanoes in the United States, according to
the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). Whether any will erupt soon, like Kilauea
did in Hawaii on Thursday, is hard to tell until a few days or weeks in
advance.
"It's really difficult to predict, because those volcanoes are relatively
quiet until they start to activate an eruption," said Ben Edwards, a
volcanologist and professor of earth sciences at Dickinson College in
Pennsylvania.

Experts know that certain volcanoes, such as ones in Alaska, erupt often:
sometimes multiple times per year. Since they're in remote areas, they don't
usually don't pose a threat to the public, though they can cause disruptions
to the aviation routes above them.

Volcanoes in more populous areas — like the ones in the Cascade Mountains
that weave through northern California, Oregon and Washington — pose much
less of a threat.
